Sundeep Mishra
Electroceuticals are a new category of therapeutic agents which act by targeting the neural circuits of organs. The therapy involves mapping the neural circuitry and delivering neural impulses to these specific targets. The impulse is administered via an implantable device. In cardiology besides pacemaker, defibrillation and resynchronization applications it could have usefulness in heart failure, atrial fibrillation, coronary artery disease, myocarditis, resistant hypertension, atrial and ventricular tachyarrhythmias, pulseless electrical activity, and refractory angina...

O P Yadava
Post Syntax Trial, 'Heart Team' Concept has been ensconsed class I recommendation in both the European and ACC/AHA guidelines and has gained increasing traction in context of complex and multi modality procedures. Despite an arrray of advantages including the much touted - 'the patient is central', there are a plethora of un-addressed issues, some of which sentinel to our country, which threaten to make the 'Heart Team' concept a perfunctory exercise. As it stands today, 'Heart Team' is more of a fictional euphemism, a kind of 'Platonic Illusion' rather than a pragmatic reality...

REVIEW
Asit Das
Atrial pacing is done for either symptomatic sinus node dysfunction (SND) or for maintenance of atrio-ventricular synchrony in a dual chamber pacemaker. Conventionally, atrial lead is placed in the right atrial appendage. Atrial conduction disorder in patients with permanent pacing results in higher incidence of atrial fibrillation. Atrial septal pacing has emerged as a solution to this problem. So, it is extremely important to understand the different features of paced P wave from various atrial pacing sites...

REVIEW
Michele Esposito, Yousef Bader, Robert Pedicini, Catalina Breton, Andrew Mullin, Navin K Kapur
In the setting of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) complicated by cardiogenic shock, three primary treatment objectives include providing circulatory support, ventricular unloading, and restoring myocardial perfusion. In addition to primary percutaneous coronary intervention, each of these three objectives can be achieved with appropriate use of an acute mechanical circulatory support (AMCS) pump. Over the past decade, utilization of percutaneously-delivered AMCS devices including the Impella axial-flow catheter, TandemHeart left atrial-to-femoral artery bypass system, and veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO) has grown exponentially...

We report two cases of malignant junctional ectopic tachycardia (JET), in infants following congenital heart surgery. After the failure of conventional therapy the arrhythmia was controlled by oral Ivabradine, a drug which is routinely used to lower heart rate in angina and heart failure in adult practice.

López-Hernández Daniel
There are significant ethnic differences in the metabolism of some drugs that can be explained by cytochrome P450 polymorphisms and, in particular, the CYP2D6 isozyme. In addition, among patients who are not carriers of the CYP2C19 loss-of-function alleles, there is a reduced risk of stroke when clopidogrel is taken with aspirin compared to aspirin alone. These findings demonstrate that there is inter-ethnic variability in the metabolism of some drugs, which results in different responses to cardiovascular drugs in Asian versus non-Asian populations...

Alexander Loch, Jan Philipp Bewersdorf, Ramesh Singh Veeriah
The LEADERS FREE trial concluded that the polymer free drug-coated BioFreedom™ stent appeared to be both safer and more effective than bare-metal stents (BMS) with an ISR rate comparable to traditional DES without the need for prolonged DAPT. We implanted 45 BioFreedom™ stents in 34 patients over a 4-month period. 4 patients represented early (106-238 days after the implant procedure) with angina symptoms and severe ISR was detected in all patients. The rate of severe and early ISR detected in our patient population of 11...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: There is some controversy about survival of coronary endarterectomy (CE) patients, so the current study aims to compare short and long term survival of patients undergoing off pump coronary artery bypass graft (OPCAB) with and without coronary endarterectomy. PATIENTS AND METHODS: we performed a retrospective analysis of data on patients undergoing OPCAB and CE between 2011 and 2012. Preoperative, perioperative and postoperative data collected from data bank...

OBJECTIVES: Bilateral internal thoracic artery (BITA) grafting strategy is the current trend in coronary artery bypass grafting for multivessel coronary artery disease. Although better long-term outcomes have been shown, BITA grafting is underutilized as a main strategy for revascularization by most of the surgeons. The survey was conducted to ascertain the current usage and concerns of BITA grafting in India. METHODS: Database of 856 Indian cardiac surgeons currently with predominantly adult practice was prepared and a questionnaire was sent about use of single and bilateral ITA grafts and BITA grafting strategy in different clinical scenarios...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to develop a coronary artery disease (CAD) prediction model that optimally estimates the pre-test probability of CAD for patients suspected of CAD. METHODS AND RESULTS: This retrospective, multi-centre study included 7360 consecutive patients (4678 men, 57.87±11.42 years old; 2682 women, 61.60±9.58 years old) who underwent coronary angiography for evaluation of CAD. A prediction model was fitted for diagnosis of CAD with the help of eight significant risk factors including sex, age, smoking status, diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidaemia, serum creatinine and angina...

OBJECTIVES: Ventricular septal rupture (VSR) is a rare but feared complication after myocardial infarction (MI). The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of thrombolytic therapy on the patterns of VSR following MI. METHODS: 30 consecutive patients admitted to a single tertiary level cardiac hospital with a diagnosis of acute MI and developed VSR in the hospital were included. The effect on thrombolytic therapy on the formation of VSR and its clinical outcome was studied...

BACKGROUND: Exercise is a physiologic stress that helps the physicians to clarify the presence or absence of cardiovascular disease which may be obscure at rest. Although it is sensitive, its specificity is affected by several parameters, such as some metabolic conditions, some structural heart diseases, and some baseline electrocardiogram abnormalities. Currently, the relationship between coronary dominance and accuracy of EET is not examined. Therefore, this study was conducted to determine the potential impact of coronary dominance on the accuracy of EET...
